Patients Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and NASH
Posted on 4/30/19 5:27 PM
@Chefjohn33 ok I have diagnoses with fatty liver and diverticulitis and had a colon resection 6 weeks ago and for the last 2 weeks have had red blood in my stool. Seeing the dr Thursday for this. Had blood test 2 weeks ago and most everything was normal liver, kidneys and wbc. Had colonoscopy 2 years ago and showed hemorrhoids and diverticulitis and had endoscopy in march which was good. But I read online that your liver can cause rectal bleeding if your portal vein gets enlarged from the pressure so now I'm worried. Hope we both get answers soon.

They didn't find my nash till it was already cirrhosis within a year I was diagnosed with diabetes, my spleen issues I have had since before my gallbladder was taken out which was a year before they found the cirrhosis and what happened is my liver enzemes went way up my Bilirubin was high but my red blood cell count was low and my iron, they sent me to a hematologist and they checked me for all kinds of things so I also have a blood disorder which is why my spleen is so big. I started the bleeding in the rectum about a year ago which led to a number of test several ct scans, both scopes upper and lower and more blood test. What my hepatologist , my hematologist , my gastro and my regular physician came up with is that the portal vein is being pushed on by the spleen because it is so large. which causes the bleeding. Now this may not be what is causeing your issues but these are just a few of mine if you have just been diagnosed and your not having any problems as of yet change your diet and get more execirse liver regenerate but not once they turn into scar tissue. I hope this helps and it may not pertain to you but good luck and always ask questions if you have someone to take with you that knows about medical things see if they can go with you to help you understand.

Hi! I was recently dx with fatty liver. I only know if this dx because my liver enzymes have been increasing since December and I kept bugging my doctor about it.
I don't know much of this dx, other than I often suffer from diarrhea and lose stools.... I guess this is a common sx?

@Msdocdoolittle a pain in your side / abdomen is usually a common symptom. I have experienced diarrhea but have never been told that was a cause from my condition.
Do you get pains in your abdomen/side? What about fatigue?

Pain has been flaring up again. I had to take a day off (which I can't afford) to lay down and recover. Usually related to diet. When I eat some forbidden things, I pay afterwards. But this time I didn't eat anything wrong, it's weird.

The worst for me is pain. I'm tired of this. Since I changed my diet, it's gotten better, but I still have pains in my side and just a general feeling of fatigue. Has anybody found a solution for the pain?
